I'm currently thinking of adding disks to my NAS at home and I was wondering where the requirements lie for a succesful hot insert/removal of a drive. Is it the drive type, OS, Backplane, ... ?
My current setup:
- Supermicro 846 with EL1 backplane
- IBM M1015 IT mode
- Debian stable
I've received my ebay'ed X9SCM-F board yesterday, only to find out there is an admin password on the bios and nothing to boot from but PXE. I got it to PXE boot a dos disk to upgrade the BIOS but the flashing tool is now sitting on a blinking cursor for 15mins now:
Has anyone else had this...
